This is decisiveness? Fred Thompson announces an announcement

Fred Thompson has said he'll announce his presidential candidacy on September 6th.

Ummmm... isn't the announcement of an announcement the logical equivalent of the announcement itself?

This is part of the reason why I'm so disgusted with modern politics: it's become too much about pomp and pageantry and public bravura, and so very little about substance.

It's like this: the President of the United States is a position of service. Those who fully comprehend that won't play games with even candidacy for it. A real leader would simply say "Yes I'm a candidate", without being a protracted prima donna about the matter.

I know what you're talking about as far as politics. I felt the same way until a couple weeks ago. There actually is one candidate I know of that is a little different than the others: Ron Paul. Check him out; he's actually interested in serving us and helping us become more free individuals as opposed to increasing the roll of federal government.

Anyway, just thought you'd be interested. Oh, and I hope Viacom offers a public apology. Things are getting quite ridiculous, eh?
